will lose now. but, more significantly, look, it really makes that debate performance by romney a big thing. look at obama being in the lead nationally and in these targeted states, going into the debate, if, if we sort of change that debate narrative and obama won it and then these numbers come out, people already starting to talk about the race being over. i think it would be even more significant. so just really points up how big that debate performance of romney was to overcome all this news that's been working against him for a while now. jenna: that is interesting painting that other scenario if it didn't happen that way but it did. in the news cycle over next several days, does it wipe out the debate performance by the president because these new numbers look more positive than expected? >> doesn't wipe it out. romney would much rather have these 8.3 and rising and the 7.8% does talk, let him talk about you who the recovery's moving apace. the more significant thing, jenna, though is what the polls were saying before any of this. suddenly we were seeing 57% of americans starting to s
in capacity. governor romney put on an extraordinary performance. melissa: what do you think becomes the take away quote? i think trickle-down government may be the take away quote. it is so perfect. lou: trickle-down government relentlessly over the course of the days until november 6. it is precisely -- it is precisely frank. melissa: it captures what is going on. lou: this governor laid it out starkly, clearly, this is a choice as he has been saying for some time. it is a choice. between government and freedom, between entitlement and opportunity and he drew that clear line. he did so eloquently and i think just utterly brilliantly. lori: we are both inhaling to ask the question. there is so much to discuss here. i think the big bird, it sticks out as well. lou: that was a moment of romney's humor. melissa: obama always wants to remind people how beautiful his life and wife is. lou: all of the commentary and chattering, including ourselves, had said, of course, romney well congrats the president on his anniversary. he did so, but he did in an unexpected, humorous, warm human way. lori: one
's stellar performance but said romney can't pay for his tax plan without sticking it to the middle class. >> we can't afford to double down on the same top-down economic policies that got us into this mess. that is not a jobs plan. >> they plan on raising taxes on the american people and that will kill jobs. we will not let that happen. we want to create jobs, not kill jobs in this country. >> when asked which candidate would best handle unemployment, romney topped the president 51 to 45% in a cnn/orc poll taken before the debate. >>> well, that debate the president's debate performance has been widely criticized as not up to snuff. former vice president al gore speculated the colorado altitude may have been a factor. >> when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> -- and you only have a few hours to adjust -- >> that's interesting. >> it may be a stretch. romney was at the same altitude although he spent a little more time in denver before the debate. hm. >> hm. i know a little bit about the altitude in denver. i don't know. football players, they go and they play. >> that's right. alth
with mitt romney clearly energized by his performance. a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters shows the republican nominee won last night's face- off by a margin of 2-1. the candidates have 12 days to prepare for the next debate. grace lee says you may notice changes particularly at the president's podium. >> reporter: i'm sure that's the hope of the obama camp. now, we asked the question, why? why has it been almost universal from both republicans and democrats that romney performed better last night and what we found is that it may not be based on what was actually said. >> the body language started strong, friendly, with the two candidates starting locked in a handshake. >> how you say something was often times more important than what you said. >> reporter: joe tuman says if you were to rate the candidates strictly on the nonverbal communication after that, former governor romney was the clear winner. >> he was energetic. he smiled a lot. and he seemed full of pep for the president. >> reporter: he says romney frequently looked at the president, kept his head up and appeared eng
during mccain one on ones. while romney did well in this season's gop debates, had rough performances, bet you $10,000 he did. romney performances, the unspoken body language that the camera captured, they were brutal against ted kennedy. ivy league will enjoy biden versus ryan more. trust me. >>> turning back to the brand new battleground polls. there's a different pattern emerging, president obama is ahead in new hampshire, tighter in nevada and north carolina. joining me, director of the marist poll. good to see you in person. >> welcome to the home of the new york yankees. >> you're going to blow the playoff run. >> i am worried. >> we want the beltway series in washington. we have been looking at this as sort of the generic, the general all nine states. what is your take away? >> i think what you're seeing is a very big difference when obama is 45, 46 as months ago when everything was 44, now he gets to 48, 49, 50, you can say it makes a difference -- >> it does feel like 48 is a big difference -- >> seeing a change in the right direction in the approval rating. >> massive gender
that tonight. >> and more. we have a horse race. mitt romney's performance was head and shoulders than anything we've seen before. >> you think this was his best debate? >> he drove this debate far more than anyone else imagined. mitt romney seized upon the opportunity and set the standard for it i think the president -- i didn't think he was rusty, as i don't think anybody has ever spoken to him like that over the last four years, and i think he found it not only surprising, but offensive. looked like he was angry at time. i think overall, you have to say -- to my surprise, i had not expected this. i think mitt romney won the debate. >> you thought there was a moment that mitt romney was particularly strong. i'll play that and then we'll talk about it. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. and the best course for health car
the president's performance. without a doubt, participating in republican primary debates helped mitt romney, the president was rusty. hasn't done this in four years. that's not an excuse as james said earlier. the obama campaign says that mitt romney doesn't care about your job or your community. we didn't hear anything like that from the president. romney at least held his own on the big questions of the economy and role of government. if you are the challenger and hold your own, you walk off the stage happy. >> critics of the president say he's two proffesorial. i think they'll say that tonight. >> and more. we have a horse race. mitt romney's performance was head and shoulders than anything we've seen before. >> you think this was his best debate? >> he drove this debate far more than anyone else imagined. mitt romney seized upon the opportunity and set the standard for it i think the president -- i didn't think he was rusty, as i don't think anybody has ever spoken to him like that over the last four years, and i think he found it not only surprising, but offensive. looked like he was a
did a fabulous job on both the relative basis. comparing mitt romney with performances that we usually see, quite fabulous. on a nominal basis, he did very, very well. i think it is true to say president obama is a superior or turk. i think mitt romney is a better debater. romney, you know, we saw something that we had not seen in a long time. it occurred to me that this reminded me more of the mitt romney i met in 1994 when he was running for the senate and came by and met with me and was incredibly an impressive and analytical and fact driven and pragmatic. this was that guy, not so much the person who had been pretending to be an ideologue for the past few years. obama seemed to be like a team sitting on a lead. i would not have said smog it, i would have just said somebody who did not seem to be terribly hungry for it. -- i would not say smug, just somebody that was not hungry for it. i did not really big in these examples after, i do not particularly care for them. -- these instant polls, i didn't care for them. when you see who did the best job, obama 25, romney 67. obama did bet
fiving behind closed doors over mitt romney's debate performance, but style won't matter a bit if romney fails to move the needle in the important state of ohio. early voting started there tuesday, and turnout could be a record breaker. some counties are reporting twice the number of voters than they got in 2008. this kind of turnout is exactly what the republicans were fearing. they, they tried to stop early voting, didn't they? but their tactics didn't hold up in court. now romney realizes that he has to win ohio the old fashioned way. he has to earn it. as a result, ohio got a lot of love from both candidates during the debate. >> i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman grabbed my arm. she said, i've been out of work since may. >> at cleveland clinic, one of the best health care systems in the world, they actually provide great care cheaper than average. >> your example of the cleveland clinic is my case in point. >> the autoworkers that you meet in toledo or detroit take such pride in building the best cars in the world not just because of a paycheck, but because if gives them that sense

romney performs. but if romney doesn't really make the case strongly, the president doesn't necessarily have to jump on him. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer the question. >> let lehrer try it. >> but i think the obama campaign is leery of being -- they need to be a little aggressive. they need to take -- >> what's the best defense? >> good offense. >> i would recommend the president. why did the cavalry leave the fort to fight the indians? do you know why? >> why. >> they're cavalry. thank you. >>> coming up, we have a new scoreboard. not like in the old days but spinners will be there. let's watch the power of the tweeter, the twitter, what's going to happen? we'll have people talking about real life, in time, while it's actually happening telling us who's winning this thing and which candidate did a better job framing the argument, deflecting criticism. we'll look at body language, too. how they stand, what they look like. caught on tape, running mate's edition yesterday. the tou"the huffington post" qu paul ryan as saying conservat
, his own performance , his policies, and the good thing is once again romney kept coming back. this is what you do to create jobs. it was almost editorial. lou: editorial. he took to school. and you really see this -- >> you mentioned tonight. i want to repeal the franc. he says medicare should be a voucher. the you think these are popular policies? president obama said if you have such great plans for what you're going to do to replace dodd-frank. >> don't keep a secret. he did not produce. lou: the only thing i actually heard the president's taken i did not hear him say what you just said, by the way. i heard and basically say that if you have a secret it because you don't want it to be heard because it's too good. >> i have heard debate contrivances like that tie just as you have over the course of our career. governor romney was hitting him with fact, programs, and he kept coming back to this $5 trillion tax cut. i can't find that anywhere. can you? >> she has been saying he wants to extend the bush tax cuts. he wants to give tax cuts to people over to -- 250. repeal the e
. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail mitt romney is trying to prolong the momentum that he got from that debate, president obama is seemed determined to make up for lost ground. romney's solid debate performance gave him a new spark on the. campaign trail. before an estimated 10,000 people in virginia he kept up his attacks on the president. >> what you didn't hear last night from the president why it is the next four years will be better than the last four years. >> reporter: the obama campaign admits it needs a change in strategy for the next two debates. president obama held back from attacking romney during the debate but that chang when he returned to the campaign trail. >> i almost got to watch out. >> reporter: the president attacked romney's plan to cut subsidies to pbs and his position was so different from what he said in the past he didn't recognize who he was debating. >> whoever was on stage last night doesn't want to be held accountable for what mitt romney has been saying in the last year. >> obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. yes we do. >> rep
can be persuaded by debate performance. and let me tell you, look at governor romney's performance last week in education nation, at our station, at the clinton global initiative, he sounded good, he talked policy, he was on his game. anybody who thinks this is going to be a walk-over for the president is wrong. governor romney is very strong. and he has the advantage, when he gets into this, he looks and sounds very presidential, no ifs, ands or buts about it. >> robert traynham, there came a point late in the race where republican supporters really thought the thing was over and they started pulling back, they started pulling money away from bob dole and they started investing it into those senate candidates. do you think this is something, do you think there's a chance we might see that this time around? that they say, you know what, our guy didn't have a shot this time, let's see if we can salvage the senate? >> it's possible. i think perhaps around halloween, a little bit before halloween, if, in fact, the numbers do not budge too, too much, there's a very good chance that mem
's poised performance -- >> i will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income americans. >> reporter: romney looked like he wanted to be there. he was engaged. >> coupled with president obama's lackluster performance seems to have changed the tone of the presidential race. >> my faith and confidence in the american future sun diminished. >> i cannot explain what happened to barack obama. he was awol. he was distracted, did he -- defensive, detached. >> reporter: frank said he should have become much more engaged. >> he dropped the ball. there's no way around it. >> reporter: having said all that, he also said that plenty of presidential candidates have rallied after a bad first debate. >> reagan came backin his second debate. >> reporter: and with that in mind he's very much looking forward to the next debate on october 16th. >> romney thinks he's on a roll now. he's going to keep that posture, i would pre excuse me. barack obama has got to have a completely different air about him. he's got to be a combatant, not a visitor. >> reporter: president obama and mr. romney actually have two debat
who watched last night as mitt romney gave the political performance of his life. >> reporter: fresh off of what many supporters viewed as a disappointing debate, president obama is trying to hit reset. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> reporter: speaking in denver, the president argued mitt romney's debate performance was big on style but short on facts. >> the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to favor the wealthy. last night, he said he didn't know anything about that. >> reporter: mitt romney quickly tried to capitalize on his momentum. >> last night, i thought it was a great opportunity for the american people to see two different vigs for the country. >> reporter: also in denver, his goal was to frame the obama presidency. >> he will raise taxes on small business, which will kill jobs. >> reporter: the debates started with a handshake, mitt romney quickly landed blows. >> what is -- . >> virtually everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurat
to build on the momentum from last night. a country music band will be performing here and mitt romney will be joined by his running mate, paul ryan. let's give a sense of what it was like on the plane as we flew out here on the way out today. we saw mitt romney as loose and as relaxed as we have seen him all campaign. he was all smiles and laughter, joking with his advisers in the front cabin. at one point, the captain came on and said that the denver control tower has congratulated the governor. that of course was met by applause with all the folks sitting by the governor. a top adviser told me the campaign is in a really good mood, but they're going out of their way not to be gloating. one other story from last night, when top supporters and donors were in romney's hotel after the debate for dinner, senator rob portman came by. he was met by applause. as one told us, portman played a better president obama than the president did himself. >> peter alexander traveling with the romney campaign. back over to chuck todd. chuck, same question to you having seen that bizarre development of
sustain your performance. that is the challenge governor romney has. >> bill: all right, scott. you are polling right now, right? >> absolutely. and when will your first national poll that reflects the debate be out? >> first national poll done after the debate comes out next sunday morning. next couple of days get a hint where it is moving. >> bill: do you want to predict where it's going? >> the president was ahead a couple of points before the debate. it wouldn't surprise me if he is behind by a couple. >> bill: three or four point swing? >> three or four point swing. >> bill: you are also doing the swing state polls, ohio, virginia, florida. those do you hope to see the same things there. >> absolutely. now, in ohio, the president has had a little bigger lead. any gains that romney makes will perhaps just cut into that. wouldn't surprise me if mr. romney moves ahead in florida or virginia. >> bill: now, things are goinga. okay? we're down about a month before we are going to vote. and it gets to be harder and harder the closer and closer you get to election day, correct? >> corr
, doctor, poll bounce? what's your prediction? >> i think governor romney's excellent performance is going to move the needle a couple of points. i don't think it's going to be a giant poll bounce to a single debate. the key is whether he continues showing his stuff in the remaining two presidential debates. >> bill: so beckel says 6 or 7 points. you say much less than that in the polls? >> for a single debate performance, yes. and, remember, bounce is always fade. they tend to be sustained. if you sustain your performance. that is the challenge governor romney has. >> bill: all right, scott. you are polling right now, right? >> absolutely. and when will your first national poll that reflects the debate be out? >> first national poll done after the debate comes out next sunday morning. next couple of days get a hint where it is moving. >> bill: do you want to predict where it's going? >> the president was ahead a couple of points before the debate. it wouldn't surprise me if he is behind by a couple. >> bill: three or four point swing? >> three or four point swing. >> bill: you are also do
, breaks going to obama's side. the romney performance overseas when he blew that thing with cameron. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go back, i would say, to may or june at the earliest to come up with a time where you feel like romney was controlling the narrative, controlling the tempo of this campaign. and then, you're right, didn't catch a break. it starts with the health care ruling at the end of june that somehow goes obama's way and then it marched through july, he takes a week off. a lot of people question that. then he ends up doing this overseas trip, as you point out. they blew their convention. blew an opportunity there. one thing about romney is he's had more experience going into a big debate behind than any other candidate at this point in time. i mean, he had this a couple of times. he needed a good debate performance to save himself in
on the debate. but this was a strong performance by governor romney. he needed one. i think he got it. >> joe? >> i think romney did himself a lot of good tonight. he was there on the issues. he knew his stuff. he didn't back down to the president or the moderator. and he didn't -- he didn't cross the line because you can do thie backfired on him. i watched obama debate a lot in primaries when i was with edwards and clinton and john ed wards. this is the guy who showed up. he's a good debeirut. but he doesn't enjoy. it you look at this. romney looked like -- i am here, this is great, i am having fun. he really did. and obama looked sort of sour and like it was another headache to have to be there. that won't help. the question here, rom flow's supporters needed to be reinvigorated. he definitely got that out of tonight. what did happen with the undecided? did women move? you know, is that enthusiasm going to spread out and show up in the differential in terms of who will vote? >> was there body language you noticed? >> to the extent, i thought they both behaved with considerable dignity and r

romney's stellar performance at wednesday's debate. >> we can't afford to double down on the same top-down economic policies that got us into this mess. that is not a jobs plan. >> they plan on raising taxes on the american people and that will kill jobs. we will not let that happen. we want to create jobs, not kill jobs in this country. >> when asked which candidate would best handle unemployment, romney topped the president 51- 45% in a cnn/orc poll taken before wednesday's debate and before the morning's numbers were released. >>> while the jobless rate is falling, prices at the pump are rising. and while were you sleeping, gas prices went up 16 cents a gallon in the bay area. >> it's scary. 68 bucks to fill up my honda and anne makovec in cupertino now with what's causing the big bump at the pump. anne. >> reporter: frank, i would not recommend you fill up your tank here at the 76 station in cupertino. you can see the price for a gallon of regular unleaded just a tenth of a cent below 5.40 a gallon. these are the highest prices that we have eve
you most about romney's performances when he was challenged by other republicans? >> well, i think you'd have to say that romney did very well during these debates. he very often seemed like the grown-up on the stage. and he wasn't a big, big loser at any of those debates. he did make mistakes. let me talk about his strengths. he's very good at turning around an opponent's weakness and turning it into a debating point. take a look at this little change with newt gingrich in florida in january. >> speaker gingrich was hired by freddie mac to promote them, to influence other people throughout washington, encouraging them not to dismantle these two entities. i think that was an enormous mistake. >> so he did it with a nice tone, said newt gingrich made an enormous mistake. i think that was a good way of romney pointing out the differences. what he does, though, is when he's in moment when there's a really candid exchange and he's not sure what to say, he can really look awkward. remember this? i bet you do. >> you were for individual mandate, my friend. >> you know what, you've raised tha

, comparing mitt romney with mitt romney performances that we usually see, boy, he was fabulous. and on a nominal basis by, in other words, any standard, he did very, very, very well. and i think it's true, i think it's true to say that president obama is a superior orator, and i think mitt romney is a better debater. and, but -- and that romney, you know, we saw something that we hadn't been seeing in a long time, and it occurred to me that this reminded me more of the mitt romney i met in 1994 when he was running for the senate and came by and met with me and stu rothenberg and was just incredibly impressive and analytical and fact driven, you know, very pragmatic. this was that guy, not so much the person who had kind of been pretending to be an i'd log for the last -- i'd log for the last few years. obama seemed to be like a team sitting on a lead, i mean, where -- i wouldn't have said smug at all, i would have just said somebody who didn't seem to be terribly hungry for it and that, um, i think -- i mean, i don't think there's any question went you look at some of the, you
to accomplish. i think for governor romney he needs to have a strong performance. it's not just about one performance for him. his problem is a lack of consistency. he's got to have a good wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday. every day to the election. if you see him give one good performance and the next day they're off message, it's more of what we've seen the bumbling along throughout the campaign. and i think for president obama the challenge is, as my former boss howard dean said, don't get irritable. it's going to be hard when governor romney is going to try to get him with his little zingers, to not get annoyed at the lack of seriousness and the lack of actual facts. so i think most of us at this point are expecting, romney can have a mediocre performance and i think he will get good spin the next day. >> steve, the romney campaign is up against another difficulty in the poll which is the public's actual expectation at this point. the "washington post" poll shows that among likely voters, 55% of them expect president obama to win the debate. 31% expect mitt romney to win the deba
the obama campaign is that a mission that in fact governor romney did have a strong performance last night, but they're going after the substance, pointing to what they say are flaws and distortions in his policies, and overall, they don't believe that the performance by the president last night and the performance by governor romney will in any way shift this race dramatically. we'll have to wait and see. i mean, we'll be watching in key battleground states like ohio or even here in colorado, taking a look at the polling over the coming days to see if, in fact, things will change. but the bottom line for the campaign is they believe that the president came in here and did what he set out to do, which is to have a conversation with the american people. the problem for the campaign is that governor romney came in here to have more than a conversation. he challenged the president. he did not back down. and according to that poll, that cnn/orc poll, most voters believe that, in fact, he did win last night, soledad. >> dan lothian, thanks, dan. >>> i want to get to senator rand paul, a republi
a mediocre performance and i think he will get good spin the next day. >> steve, the romney campaign is up against another difficulty in the poll which is the public's actual expectation at this point. the "washington post" poll shows that among likely voters, 55% of them expect president obama to win the debate. 31% expect mitt romney to win the debate. and presumably that expectation will color the way those viewers watch that debate. >> yeah. it could. i mean, maybe this is the one risk maybe the biggest risk for the obama campaign that if the bar is set that high, if there's sort of an even match, if romney kind of holds his own, isn't clearly blown out of the water or anything like that, that people say he exceeded expectations. so what looked like a draw ends up being interpreted by the viewers or the media, or if the media is looking to sell the horse race angles, maybe they start portraying the draw as a romney win. the expectations for his performance were so low, kennedy outdebated romney but the effect of that was mogfied because the expectations were so low. that might be the b
analysts and average voters as the winner, political challenger, mitt romney echoed his performance. >> he will raise taxes on small business which will kill jobs. i instead want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs. >> reporter: it will be a few days before we will know if romney's strong debate performance will translate into higher poll numbers. romney stumped in virginia for an early evening rally. >> when paul ryan and i get to washington we'll begin a real recovery that will put america back to work again. >> reporter: reaction from president's supporters was immediate. >> i felt like he should have been more aggressive. >> reporter: mr. obama targeted what he said was the real difference between the quote, real mitt romney's budget plan and what his opponent said on stage. >> the fact is governor romney's math just doesn't add up. and i had to spend a lot of time last night trying to -- pin it down. he traveled to wisconsin where he told the second rally -- >> i want to make sure i got this straight. he will get rid of regulations on wall street, but he is goin

after mitt romney's strong debate performance next week. more bad news could come in in a few hours with jobs numbers. doug luzader is live with how this is playing out on the campaign trail. >> good morning. we are going to hear a whole range of topics today. post debate analysis continues. one of the things we will be talking about is the nation's unemployment rate. you see it charted out through the course of the president's administration. where does it head from here that is a big concern for both campaigns. we will have the numbers in about 3 hours. president obama spent more time in swing states yesterday. he visited wisconsin, he will be in virginia today. what we saw is kind of a reinvigorated candidate trying to recover from what many saw as a lackluster performance. >>> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he has been saying for the last year. that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he has been selling for the last year. governor romney may dance around his positions, but if yo
their first debate in colorado. the president acknowledged romney's stellar performance but questioned the republican challenger's accuracy. >> when i got on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow to claims to be mitt romney. you about i know it couldn't have been -- but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. >> i saw the president's vision as trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. >> nielsen estimates 67 million people saw tuesday evening's debate, the most watches since 1992. >>> and we're just getting started on a friday. it is an annoying annual event the east bay city dealing with an aggressive invasion of birds. >> plus, he was just one badge away from reaching eagle scout. why it may never happen for this moraga teen. >> and holy pepperoni! a robber got more than he bargained for when he tried to rip off an atlanta pizza hut. we'll explain when we come back. ,, ,,,,,,,, you. we know you. we know you
by the statement that his plan wouldn't increase taxes. much of romney's performance was rooted in deception from his very first answer when he tried to disown his tax program, and then finally he is unable to deem regulation he would keep -- he has been saying for how long he would repeal dodd-frank. and suddenly just because he said it, oh no you have to have regulation -- [ cuckoo clock chimes ] >> stephanie: unbelievable. paul tonko, good morning, congressman. >> good morning, stephanie. how are you. it's great to join you and your listeners. >> stephanie: you too. it was great to see you at the dnc. it really is stunning to try to fact check romney, right? >> the one that got me was the revenue reducing tax cut, and talk about this resulting growing of the base and, you know, it's -- it's so interesting that -- that the revenue-neutral concept is pretty much just nomenclature they are suggesting that as the tax base grows, in the future we'll recover revenues and therefore the tax cut will be paid for. well that sounds an awful lot like the bush recession, where t
performance attacking governor romney. now he is about to speak where you are in virginia. what do you think he is going to do? keep the bounce back and be aggressive? >> yes. that has been the whole point. get more aggressive than what he had a couple nights ago in the debate and this will be a discussion about the jobs number and a campaign moving forward and an economy moving forward and a real problem with the way the president came out the other night. wanted him to be more aggressive and go after mitt romney more than he did and that is what he did the next day. he didn't do it during the debate. stuart: we are going to carry the president's remarks when he makes them later this hour. 45 minutes from now. we are following that. rich edson. there is a lot of skepticism about those jobs numbers and you are expressing it to us on our facebook page. regina is one of many skeptics and she says no way. something smells like fish. amy is downright offended. do they really think we had this to bid? strong stuff on facebook today. this from candice. convenience is an understatement. join in thi
this stick to romney? can he take advantage of this successful performance going forward? >> john, what about president obama's performance? there was no mention of the 47%, no mention of bain, no mention of women's health care and obamacare. did obama leave his greatest hits on the cutting room floor? >> i think he did. what mitt romney did successfully, he was able to press the case against the president while also remaining appealing enough that those instant polls done after the debate showed that people liked mitt romney. the president sort of stayed away from doing anything that was too terribly aggressive, he spoke sort of as if he were leading a seminar about this. and by not being aggressive, as you said, he left some of his best material on the cutting room floor. you can be sure in ads and in talking points in the coming days that's not going to be the case. >> john, is this a new mitt romney or is this simply a mitt romney that we had not seen? >> well, isn't that -- that's been a long-standing question about mitt romney. there were a lot of times where mitt romney talked about hi

the crowd, but it was still the romney debate performance that had voters energized. >> he took the debate by the get-go. this is one of the most vibrant campaign rallies since he started i think. >> a lot of people felt like they didn't really know what he was about, and i think he gave us a real clear picture. >> mitt romney naiks two more stops in virginia, tomorrow and monday. in fishersville, virginia, julie carrie, news4. >> president obama is back in washington tonight preparing for another campaign rally tomorrow morning at george mason university after what many called a lackluster debate performance last night. the president was back in front of a crowd today and wasted no time going after his rival. >> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. >> just want to make sure i got this state. he'll get rid of regulations on wall street but he'll crack down on sesame street. >> michelle obama will speak to voters at the loudoun county fairgrounds next tuesday. >>> a man is in se
was on for mitt romney to perform to back up his ideas with details, taking on the man that even some republicans had described as one of the most skilled debaters in modern politics. the point of this debate was to make differences clear, on lowering the desmt. >> you said you'd cut the deficit in half, it's now four years later, we have trillion-dollar deficits. >> the way we do it is for every $2.50 of additional debt, we ask for a dollar, paid for by those doing very well to contribute a little more to reduce the deficit. >> reporter: the president insisted romney would spend five trillion on tax breaks favoring the wealthy. >> math, common sense, and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job growth. >> everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. >> they clashed on wall street, whether banks should be too big to fail, and medicare. >> cutting $716 billion from medicare to be able to balance the additional cost of obama care is, in my opinion, a mistake. >> if you repeal obama care, and i have become fond of this term, obama care, if you repeal it, what happens is those sen
on the radio and see on tv is mitt romney came out aggressively and performed well and the. basically avoided -- the president basically avoided any major mistakes. the question is whether they can gain any ground in the polls. 9news now reporter kristin fisher is in our satellite center with more. >> reporter: good morning. if you all wanted a real nitty gritty debate full of substance, this was it. the candidates used lots of numbers. they were very in the weeds so to speak. i imagine their message was at times almost tough to follow for the average american. they spent the entire 90 minutes focusing on domestic policies. the first 30 minutes were spent entirely on issue number one job creation. >> over the last 30 months we've seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the all toe industry has come roar -- auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we still got a lot of work to do. so the question here tonight is not where we've been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skew towards the
research >>> after a strong performance in the first presidential debate mitt romney returned to the campaign trail in virginia today using momentum to spell out what he would do to improve the economy and foreign competition. >> people steal our jobs through unfair trading practices as china as, i will hold them accountable and call them on the carpet. we cannot let our jobs be stolen unfairly. >> and in denver, president obama ridiculed romney for cutting public television. >> thank goodness, someone is getting tough on big bird. finally. it's about time. we didn't know big bird was driving the federal deficit. >> the president's campaign says mr. obama will take a different approach at the next debate following what most considered a disappointing performance. aides say the president will focus on romney's candor, calling him a liar but using softer terms. >> people seem to agree mitt romney scored a win in the debate. president obama told a denver awed -- audience romney misrepresented himself. >> there did the president tell the truth? truth is that that is not what is go
that romney's dishonest performance invited. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we don't need any more teachers in our classrooms. but don't boo, vote. but the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers. can't get enough of them. the mitt romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries. but the guy on stage last night, he said that he doesn't even know that there are such laws that encourage outsourcing. he's never heard of them. never heard of them never heard of tax breaks company for companies that ship jobs overseas. he said if it's true, he must need a new accountant. now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. so you
did we see us democrats, did we see mitt romney giving extremely slick performance. definitely, definitely. there, many polls show democrats aren't as enthusiastic about the results as we hoped we would be. but the fact. matter is, mitt romney has been rehearsing for this since june. so, you know, he has been preparing and preparing more than any other presidential candidate in modern history and --. melissa: i love a president that does his homework. i want to hire someone to be ejoe of the country who does his homework. i don't know that is fault. >> absolutely, melissa. he doesn't have as much time to do homework busy running the country. absolutely did mitt romney win on style points? that's for sure. people like us we talk about this. we're treating this like boxing match. absolutely romney had a couple good sinkers and couple good punches in there. when they go to the polls --. melissa: where did you see he failed on substance? what would you point to you didn't like on substance? >> you brought up the sound bite about his five boys and, how people repeating things over a
consensus was romney had a slight edge over the president in terms of his performance at the debate tonight. >> two rebuild america. >> more effective. more charismatic. >> i will lower taxes on middle income families. >> governor romney held his own. actually, i was surprised. >> reporter: after the debate was over, even some of the president's biggest supporters in the room felt that romney had won. >> romney did a great job in presenting himself in like a very positive way. even though, like, the answers that obama gave were very pro democratic, pro public education. >> overall, romney, from my perspective, did a little bit better. he wasn't as specific as obama, but he set out to attack obama more. >> this way it's his do or die moment. >> reporter: melinda jackson says romney had more to gain in tonight's debate. and while the president's debate performance was solid, the president had more to lose. >> i think romney did his job tonight. i think he gave a solid performance. he was confident. he was polished. >> reporter: now bunot everyone in the room saw it that way. >> i think romney
winner. laying the bench mark it's the debate falls into the media means of romney has to perform if he doesn't it's an excuse of another round in my mind of disgustingly biassed pieces of mitt romney. i believe phil is right when bara barack obama was challenged in the interview last week by jorge he was challenged really hard. he is uncomfortable when he is confronted with facts and simply worded questions. if mitt romney remind people we have 11.7 unemployment not 8.1 america's best days cannot be behind her they have to be in front of her i think he wins by not having a moment but having a moment of real leadership and real maturity. >> in that first debate wednesday october 3rd fox news channel coverage starts at precisely at 8:55 p.m. with meg megan kelly and bret baier. >> not a minute later than that. 8:55. >> before you leave your house let's get the first degree weather update. >> we have a lot of heavy ooifrn the weekend. todayed rain is over tennessee and the carolinas already starting to see some of that early this morning and some of the heavy rain into portions of eastern
in this country. plan.ey 's >> i was incurred. this was a strong performance for governor romney. he was very assertive and had a high level of energy. i spot the president was flat and had a hard time defending some of its policies. this will be the kind of debate that resets the campaign. we will see a very different tomorrow for the campaigns as far as public opinion. people saw the governor for the first time tonight could not help going away his ability to communicate his knowledge, i think. there were some great lines in the debate. romney's lied about president obama picking mostly losers, that was a good line and probably will get some play. i thought the governor tonight touched a lot of areas in terms of things that he would do if elected president, to address the major challenges facing the country. he had answers. i thought the president focused more on excuses for why this had not been done. oftentimes you have to dead people and not by what they say but by what they do. we talk about energy and tax reform. -- oftentimes you have to judge people not by what they say but by what t
. >> reporter: good morning. mitt romney came out strong in last night's performance during the first showdown between the two candidates and talking about the specifics. 67% of voters who watched the debate said mitt romney won versus 2 5% for president barack obama. the first presidential debate focused and candidates have plenty to talk about including health care reform. >> in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did was push through a plan without a single republican vote. >> in the past two years, it has gone up but they have gone up slower than any time in the last four years. >> my number one principal said there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit to a void the middle-class, it is maddening. >> he -- room room emphasized his campaign principles. >> look at the last four years, we have 23 million people out of work. >> the debate was low on drama and high on energy if i cannily from mitt romney. -- particularly from mitt romney. >> he seized upon that opportunity and i didn't think president barack obama was rusty so much that nobo
against mitt romney a day late. trying to regain his footing after a rocky debate performance, the president today seemed everything he was not last night. >> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romn romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. >> mitt romney was greeted with thunderous applause this morning. >> last night, i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see very different visions for the county 2ri. >> the morning after, even supporters said the president seemed tentative, defensive, frequently looking down at his notes like ford, carter, bush and bush. almost too accustomed to the oval office. not used to being challenged. most surprising, the president did not use some of his most potent attack lines. mitt romney's comments that 47% of the country don't pay federal income taxes. or romney's position on women's health issues. the president's surrogates tried to shift the subject to romney. >> romney says he's going to cut loopholes, but won't name them. >> romney clearly came
class families will benefit too much? >> pundits are saying romney's aggressive performance last night was what he needed to do to generate much needed momentum for his campaign. >> bay area voters tuned in to watch and react. >> romney was came out much stronger than probably obama figured he would. >> i think obama kept his cool. i think he has answered everything in reasonable, honest, nonmud-slinging way. >> there was also reaction to the performance of the moderator, many critiqued him for allowing the candidates to keep talking well beyond their time limits. next debate a week from today in kentucky when biden and ryan face off. the vp debate -- >> san francisco archdiocese will install a new archbishop this afternoon. two thousand people are expected to watch cordileone become the city's 9th archbishop appointed by the pope in july to replace retiring george niederauer. cordileone was bishop shop of oakland. gay rights supporters plan to protest outside today's event. cordileone is due in court next tuesday to face a d ui charge in san diego. >>> gay activist group calling on lo

the president had a good performance last night. obviously, mitt romney had a good performance, but that's just what it was. it was a performance. he wasn't leveling with the american people or being honest with them about his own policies and what he was going to do with this country. the president took a different approach, he was being honest and was laying out where he would take this country, giving him what a second term obama presidency would mean for them personally and the middle class. he took a different approach. now that we know what we're dealing with in the mitt romney that showed up last night -- i presume he will show up at the next debate, too. we'll hold him accountable for the things he's saying about the president and his own. he has a history here. he has been running for president now for six years. >> stephanie -- >> he has taken a lot of positions. he has to be responsible for those position. >> i'm going to give you the award for the person most loyal to their perpendicular. you are so loyal. i can't resist this sound bite. >> great. thank you. >> i had a headache last
romney may have had coming out of that debate performance. at the end of the day the debate about this election is the economy. it's about jobs. and when you see over 5 million jobs being created, we have dug ourselves out of this incredible hole that the policies of the previous administration created, the same policies that governor romney supports. that's a very strong argument. no one i think on the democratic side will go around and celebrate and sit there and say the job is done, but when the choice in voters' minds, especially when you have this debate in the coming debates, the president is going to be able to turn around in a very strong and forceful way and say, listen, we've created 5 million jobs. the unemployment rate is now under 8% and governor romney your policies are the ones that will end up creating a worse economic climate, a worse jobs crisis because we know that. it already happened before. so that's what i think it does. it provides the president a really strong contrast. >> susan, mitt romney ate his spinach for that debate. peggy noonan who has been riding
simonetti with the business beat. >> happy friday. >> mitt romney's debate performance, a lot of people still talking about that. it seemed to make wall street pretty happy. >> it really did. many people would tell you we had a romney rally yesterday and they say that because, if you look at the sectors that soared, they were financials, energy and materials. they were all up because of what romney said. he said he would boost domestic production of oil and coal, hence energy materials were higher. he all said he would pull back on dodd frank and other financial reforms. the banks were higher yesterday. all in all, great day for stocks. dow is up 81 points. we did have up arrows across the board. today, we are flat lining slightly positive. we are waiting for the jobs report. >> what are we thinking. >> we've had 8 plus% unemployment for 4 # months in a row. if you want to bring down that 8 plus percent unemployment rate you need a job creation number above 200,000. even if we get 150,000, you condition call day good jobs report because at this point in the economic recovery, we need to
